This exhibition has been brought together to challenge both artists and the viewing public to embrace the less serious side of the serious business of art. This set of works superimposes triangles within other significant art contexts and in doing so, uses triangles as a cultural metaphor for current contemporary art practices across a range of genres. Our group has a diverse range of artists - printmakers, photographers, sculptors, painters, machinima and animation artists - and we have come together to explore the ways in which we may expand our practice through complex simplicity, humour and collaboration. The exclusiveness of high art genres induces an uneasiness in the general viewing public, disconnecting such art from the people by making them feel as if they cannot ever understand it. As a collaborative, it is our goal to subvert such seriousness and exclusivity, by making the subject matter easily understandable and relatable. We hope not only to "distract the masses' but also to "demand concentration' from our audience, thereby blurring the boundaries of that which is considered to be high art.
Artists: Tess Baxter, Suzanne Breeze, Lisa Brummel, Dearne Dettrick, Elyse Edmonds, Catherine Gamble, Jesse Goldspink, Alison James, Patrick Lester, Jean Martin, Michelle Vine
